Live Newport 1963
- Publication date
The tunes here reflect an interest in the coming wave of avant garde developing in mid 60s Chicago with the birth of the AACM and the Art Ensemble. Thorne's contributions are particularly influenced by his association with John Cage and eastern philosophy.
Although this record is titled "Live in Newport 1963" it is actually a studio record that has been masked to be live. On the original LP there were breaks between songs that had an announcer introducing each tune. Any audible applause or sounds were added in the studio to create the live feel. The almost apologetic tone of the announcer (reportedly Daley himself?) and the uneven mixing of his vocal level create a horrible framework for an otherwise highly innovative piece of avant garde jazz history.
(All of the announcer intros have been removed from the album here)
